GENERAL MEETING: De-stigmatizing Mental Illness and Violent Behavior
During this General Meeting, we ask that attendees come with open minds and are ready to share in small group discussions.
The increase in situations regarding violent behavior and the stigma that mentally ill persons are to blame, leads us to wonder how Howard County is coping with and handling the issue. ACS feels this is an important community topic to share, listen, and learn. While we might not have ‘solutions,’ we can start the conversation together as a community.
Subject Matter Experts already scheduled to attend include:
HC DrugFree:Joan Webb Scornaienchi, Executive Director
Department of Corrections:Jack Kavanagh
Howard County Mental Health AuthorityDonna Wells, Executive Director
Howard County Police Department William J. McMahon, Chief of Police
Howard County Public School System:Dr. Craig Cummings, Coordinator, Alternative Education and Pupil PersonnelDr. Cynthia A. Schulmeyer, Coordinator, School Psychology & Instructional Intervention
Humanim:Jesse Guercio, Director, Behavioral Health Services
NAMI Howard County:Beverley Francis-Gibson, Executive DirectorSteve Gray, Director of Programs & Development
This event is planned for ACS members, but open to the public. This is a great session for staff to attend.
